RPG 2018 Chit Chat and Nonsense thread
« on: August 21, 2018, 06:26:18 AM »
Thread for all our extra comments, discussion or nonsense outside the main story.

First huge thanks to @Nighteyes for taking the plunge and starting up. We really do need some pure fun around and what better than getting lost in an RPG again. That was what it was always about. Reckon the Bartender needs to tell us his name, though?

Yaay to Scarlet the Wizard and Henry the Jack back again and welcome @Slaykomimi bringing to Maxim join in.  As mentioned for me RL is slightly complex, not the brood, thank heavens,just the palace moving, but will do my best. ;D

Lady Ty, I *loved* your post ;D :-*

Edit: new people thinking about joining, you don't have to write full stories like JR, it can be just a few lines like I did  ;) ;D

Now we need some baddies... or will they appear later?
If you'd like to be a baddie, you can start your post with "In the meantime, in "baddie's castle", "baddie's name" was "doing something bad" ;D

The baddie is the dragon or the incontinent ruler, Theresa of May.  Not sure why my map is not showing up.  Does the link work for people?

Needs to be smaller!  :P 

So basically as a group you need to plot a course across the kingdom (think you have 3 choices of routes really), and I'll throw a few curveballs at you.

Henry peered at the map, curious as ever.
'I think we oughta check out the beach bar at port Quinta de la rosa, guys. That coconut with an umbrella looks tempting.'
The bartender sighed. 'That's supposed to be a ship.'
You made me laugh OUT LOUD! At work!!!! >:(
 ;D ;D ;D

I lack the time to join but wish you heaps of fun. The pirates RPG is one of my fondest forum memories.:)

Did you write/mention Caleb, Charlemagne and all the other RPGists?

Sure!
Please note that we have now moved the action to the new thread and we're all now at the Port :)

Maybe one thing I should highlight to new people: it doesn't have to make sense or be logical ;D
I had the exact same problem the first time I entered, but now I know better 8)

So you can keep the cake, or even make a cake appear out of thin air, hehe
